Default Home page slow to open

HI---After installing and uninstalling a problematic Firefox, I began experiencing the trouble with opening my home page. I belive that some other sites are slower to open also. Hijackthis tells me that the URLSearchHook is missing---don't know if that is related or if I should fix that or not. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Possibly a virus.

Do a virus scan.

I'm using ZA Internet Secuity and no viruses detected. I really think that Firefox caused the problem-----but what? Where? How?

Naw!!! It doesn't take that long (1 minute) to load but it sometines takes too long, while other times it is loading quickly. Also occasionally it just hangs and won't load at all. By reinstall it I guess u mean Firefox. I don't want to do that as I feel Firefox created my problems.
